Celebrating Friendship - Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop


Hello Friends!  I'm so honoured to be invited to celebrate with Julie on her Blogoversary event.  It's amazing how the internet has enabled all of us to meet because we share a common love for stamping and crafting.  To help Julie celebrate, she has invited some of her  blogging friends to share some artwork on the theme Celebrating Friendship. If you have come from Corrie's blog you are in the right place, if not, please start from the very beginning at Julie's blog.  To make the hop fun, there will be prizes along the way plus lots of inspiration :-)


I love making cards - it is my way of unwinding after a busy day or week at workToday, I have 2 Unity cards to share, and am linking it to the Unity FWF, after all, I first met and connected with Julie on the Unity Friends with Flair post 

My first card is with an image from Phyllis Harris - "Every Breath" coloured with Copic markers.  Those of you who know me, will be able to tell I'm a big fan of Phyllis. Her stamps are a joy to colour and I love this set.  The sentiment says it all, every breath is a gift and every friend is also a gift.  I just can't imagine life without friends.


My second card is a one layer card using Angie Blom's "Lizzie Girl {Showered with Love}".  I am in love with all the Angie Girls I think it will be a cheery card to give a friend who's had some rainy days.


To add a little interest, I stamped some washi tapes using the set "Washi This Love".  I used this 120lb cardstock so that the Copic colouring does not bleed through the card.

 
I have to apologise, in my hurry to prepare this post, I forgot to note the Copic colours I used. I hope you like the cards.

Your next stop is Erin (CelticCrafter) & Ruth's blog here - http://celticcrafters.blogspot.com/.

Thanks for visiting me.  Oh before I forget, I have a little gift for someone who leaves me a comment or follow my blog :)  I will announce the winner on Monday.

Enjoy the hop and the weekend!
Kary
